Increase Energy Efficiency with a Motorized Shades Installation
Lower the Power Bill of Your Dallas Home with Smart Technology
Everyone needs to be doing more to conserve energy. Earth doesn’t have unlimited resources, and each new scientific study examining the sustainability of our environment comes back with grimmer and grimmer results. But it’s not too late to make small changes in our lifestyles that can have a significant impact on the future of our planet.
Smart home automation does a lot to make our lives more comfortable, but it also presents opportunities to make our homes more energy efficient. A motorized shade installation can help you cut down on energy consumption by regulating temperature and brightness, and our brand partner, Lutron, offers the most reliable technology with the most comprehensive and easy-to-use control system.
Keep reading to learn how a Lutron motorized shade installation can help you have a greener home, which is good for both the Dallas, TX community and the world at large.
Regulate Without Electricity or Gas
Motorized shades create a barrier between your home and the outside world that can be manipulated to regulate temperatures and the amount of light in your space. Warm air primarily escapes through your windows, but by creating a pocket of air between the window and the fabric, the shades keep warm air inside and block out the cold.
Consider how your home’s temperature fluctuates during a holiday party. You want it comfortably warm when everyone arrives, but as more guests appear and food gets cooked in the kitchen, the house is going to get increasingly hotter. Your motorized shades can automatically lift to let that extra heat naturally seep out, so you don’t need to pump your climate control system to cool down.
Motorized shades can also help cut down on the electricity used by your lighting fixtures by automatically adjusting throughout the day to maximize the amount of natural light in your home. You can do this by programming your window treatments to follow the movement of the sun, or by installing ambient light sensors that make automatic changes based on the brightness of the space in relation to the specific setting you’ve programmed.
In addition to energy savings, motorized shades also protect your interior décor by blocking UV rays that can cause discoloration and corrosion of furniture, flooring, and artwork. And to help make your carbon footprint even smaller, Lutron also offers shading fabrics made from sustainable materials.
